Check out Poemeleon's regionally-focused sister publication:



Founded in 2010  by Cati Porter, in partnership with the Inlandia Institute, Inlandia: A Literary Journey seeks to spotlight the Inland Empire's rich literary heritage. What you will find at Inlandia: A Literary Journey are regionally-focused poems, stories, essays, memoir, novel excerpts, book reviews, interviews, and a rotating feature of work produced by participants from the Inlandia Creative Writing Workshops series.

As the founding editor of Poemeleon, whose inaugural issue focused on place, I invite all of Poemeleon's readers to explore the region that I -- and about four million other people -- call home. And, in spite of rumors to the contrary, it really is nothing like the David Lynch movie by the same name.

Published annually, issues have included Inlandia-connected authors Shin Yu Pai, Rebecca K. O'Connor, Louise Mathias, Nicelle Davis, Gayle Brandeis, Stephanie Barbe Hammer, and many more.
